“Contemporary woman of today” is how Orlando Pita, hairstylist for J Mendel’s fall 2012 show, described the hair inspiration for the show. The voluminous undone waves create an effortless look that you can definitely wear from the office to a Friday night out. The goal is for your hair to look like it was wind whipped (to almost perfection) naturally.

The J Mendel fall 2012 hairstyle greatly complimented the luxurious collection that mixed sharply tailored outerwear and softly draped and ultra feminine dresses. The simplicity of the voluminous, softly waved hairstyle really went well with the elaborate detailing of each piece.

It would not matter how long or short your hair is because you would want to look a little bit dishevelled, as if you just finger combed your hair. Follow the steps to recreate this easy-peasy undone waves hairstyle for yourself.

How to: voluminous undone waves

Blow dry your hair in sections from roots to tips with a thick ceramic round brush and then spray on a volume mousse to hold each curl and to give hair extra bounce. (Quick tip: it’s best if you lift sections of the hair per spray for more volume per section.)
Part the hair in the middle. With a 1.25″ curling iron held vertically, start curling your hair in sections from the nape of the neck going up to the top of the head. Hold each curl for at least one minute before letting it loose. You do not have to pin the curls up, just let it down and let it hang while you curl the other sections of your hair.

After you are done with curling, brush it all out with a paddle brush for a natural look. Remember not to over brush it because you might lose the curls so do it lightly and gently.

This is all about looking natural and undone so we would suggest for you to tease, with a paddle brush, the hair on the crown area to give it a little bit of a boost and volume. This little trick will definitely add effortless glamour to your daytime outfit.
